    Hi, you get it automatically if you stay in catered halls (Windsor/wantage/St pats/dunsden crescent) it is loaded onto a card and you can spend it in certain food outlets on campus instead of having to cook all of your meals

    Nope, it's not like a bursary or anything, just the way the catered halls work
